Israel Demolishes 2 Terrorists’ Homes in Jerusalem

Monday, January 4th, 2016

The homes of two Jerusalem terrorists were demolished Monday morning by IDF forces.

Both structures were located in the neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, a terrorist stronghold from which a number of Arab attackers have originated.

The two terrorists, together with a third carried out lethal attacks on October 13 in Jerusalem that killed four and wounded 16 others.

In response, Israel’s High Court of Justice approved orders to demolish the homes on December 23, 2015. The orders were carried out on Monday morning (Jan 4).

The home of Baha’a Aliyan, 22, was demolished. Alliyan boarded Egged bus No. 78 in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood together with another terrorist, Bilal Ranem, 23 and began stabbing and shooting the passengers. Two victims died instantly and a third died a few weeks later. More than a dozen others were wounded in the attack, which took place not far from the terrorists’ own neighborhood. Aliyan was shot and killed by police. Ranem was shot and wounded; he was arrested by police and taken into custody.

Aliyan’s home was completely demolished Monday morning by IDF engineers.

Nearly simultaneously, Abu Jamal rammed his Bezeq service vehicle into a crowd of people at a bus stop on Malchei Israel Street in central Jerusalem, then got out and began chopping whoever was left standing, with a cleaver. Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky, z’l, 60, was killed.

The home of Ala’a Abu Jamal – who was employed as a technician with the Bezeq telephone company – was filled with concrete by the IDF engineers, and completely sealed off.

IDF Demolishes Home of Legal Arab Worker-Turned-Terrorist

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

IDF soldiers spent the night Tuesday mapping out the home of an Arab terrorist who stabbed and seriously wounded two Jewish workers last week, in preparation for its destruction by morning.

Eight days ago, Ismail Moussa Mahmoud al-Hadidi, 39, stabbed the two Jews at adjacent construction sites in the central Israeli city of Modi’in in what at first appeared to be a possible case of “workplace violence.” Both sustained moderate wounds and were listed in fair condition.

Al-Hadidi, a legal construction worker from the Palestinian Authority who entered pre-1967 Israel daily, was quickly overpowered by other workers at the site. He was arrested and taken into custody.

All of the terrorist’s identity papers were found to be in good order, with proper entry and work permits.

Plans for the destruction of Al-Hadidi’s home in Beit Liqiya, located just over the 1949 Armistice Line (the “Green Line”) near Modi’in, were prepared overnight by combat soldiers from the Duchifat Battalion of the Kfir Brigade. The home was demolished by Israel’s military engineering unit in the wee hours of the morning.

3 Terrorists’ Homes Demolished in Hebron

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

IDF soldiers gathered in Hebron overnight Wednesday into Thursday to demolish the homes of three Arab terrorists.

Each of the attackers was responsible for carrying out a stabbing terror attack against Israelis last week.

Palestinian Authority activists have been collecting funds to rebuilding the homes of terrorists when they are demolished by the Israeli government.

As of three days ago, one Hebron Arab contributed NIS 114,421 to the fund, according to a tweet by Daoud Kuttab on the Twitter social networking site.

Israel Demolishes Home of Terrorist in Northern Jerusalem

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Hundreds of police officers and IDF soldiers gathered Wednesday morning to protect workers who demolished the home of a terrorist in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

The terrorist, Ibrahim Al-Akri, carried out a ram-and-stab attack in his mini-van at a train platform, killing two officers and then getting out of his vehicle to attack bystanders. He was neutralized by forces at the scene who shot and killed him.

Israel Police said in a statement, “We will operate with zero tolerance against anyone who attempts to disrupt society, and against anyone who attempts to harm security forces.”

Earlier in the week, two of the three Jewish minors who brutally murdered an Arab teen from Shuafat were convicted in the Jerusalem District Court. But the swift response of the Israeli justice system did little to stem the wave of Arab terror, much of which emanates from the neighborhood. That same day, Arab attackers in Shuafat hurled rocks at the Jerusalem Light Rail — which serves commuters in the neighborhood with a regular stop there — traumatizing passengers and damaging another car on the train, which again had to be taken out of service.

A number of the residents in the restive neighborhood have been deeply involved in terrorist activities and others, while not actively involved, have supported their actions. In a prelude to Operation Protective Edge in summer 2014 and during the war itself, Arab terrorists in Shuafat destroyed all the Light Rail stops in the neighborhood and also one in a nearby area.

Supreme Court Cancels Terrorist Home Demolition

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

There is an old saying in Yiddish, “Man plans and God laughs.” In Israel, the struggle is usually between top government officials and the Supreme Court.

This time, the home of an Arab terrorist who murdered an IDF soldier a year ago is safe from demolition thanks to a stay of execution by the Supreme Court.

The terrorist, Nur al-Din Abu Hashayeh, was convicted on the charge of murder in the first degree after he stabbed IDF soldier Almog Shiloni to death on November 11, 2014 at Tel Aviv’s HaHagana train station.

But the Supreme Court ruled that the 11-month delay between the date of the attack and the decision to demolish the terrorist’s family’s home was unreasonable.

The two judges wrote in their opinions that such a long delay undermines the intended deterrent effect of home demolitions. Rapid carrying out of such orders is central to fair and correct administration, wrote Judges Meni Mazuz and Tzvi Zylbertal.

Judge Elyakim Rubinstein wrote the minority opinion, contending that a partial demolition of the home would weigh fairly between the amount of time passed and execution of the order, and the need to create deterrence.

Yossef Shiloni, the father of the victim, expressed his outrage at the decision.

“The very least the state could have done was to demolish the terrorist’s home to calm us down a little. Nothing will bring back Almog, but it would have given us a bit more heart,” he told the Hebrew-language Yediot Acharonot.

As the trial continues, the distraught father said, the terrorist “laughs in our faces, yells at the court and humiliates us.”

3 Terrorists Killed in IDF Shootout at Demolition of Gonen Murderer’s Home

Monday, November 16th, 2015

Three Arab terrorists were killed in Qalandiya, north of Jerusalem early Monday morning in a shootout with IDF soldiers at the demolition of the home of a convicted murderer.

IDF soldiers came under fire from the trio while demolishing the home of Muhammad Abu Shaheen, the terrorist who last June shot and killed hiker Danny Gonen.

Hundreds of Arabs also attacked the force at the same time with firebombs, IEDs (improvised explosive devices) and rocks, according to an IDF spokesperson. Israeli forces used riot dispersal means to disperse the mob.

During the demolition, the three Arab terrorists opened fire at the IDF soldiers, who returned fire in response to the threat. They confirmed three hits, which resulted in the three deaths.

Gonen, 25, was murdered near the Jewish community of Dolev when he stopped after visiting the Ein Buvin spring, in order to give the terrorist directions.

Netanyahu Cancels Demolition of Illegal Arab Homes Due to Tensions

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

(JNi.media) Prime Minister Netanyahu has been urging the Jerusalem municipality to speed up the demolition of houses belonging terrorists’ families in response to the wave of Arab violence, but according to an Army Radio report Tuesday, since the wave of terror began, the PM’s office has been ordering the cancellation of demolitions of illegal construction in east Jerusalem. Some call it awarding terrorism, others an attempt to avoid an even greater escalation.

In the heart of Beit Hanina, a predominantly Palestinian neighborhood five miles north of central Jerusalem, on the road to Ramallah, stands a large apartment building that was built illegally and has been slated for demolition for 10 years. On Monday it was scheduled to finally come down, when, at the last moment, it received the municipal equivalent of a reprieve from the governor: the Jerusalem municipality received a call from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s staff, spelling out: “Because of the security tensions you do not have authorization to demolish the building.”

MK Moti Yogev (Bayit Yehudi) told Army Radio that this constitutes a surrender to terrorism: “These are very serious elements of the loss of sovereignty, and this loss brings with it the loss of security — they’re links in a chain.” Yogev added: “When there is no law enforcement in simple areas like construction, trade, parking and transportation, it gives rise to nationalistic and security crime.”

According to Jerusalem municipal officials, the building in question claimed not only was built illegally, but it also is an eyesore harming the appearance of the neighborhood, and the need to demolish it is not political.

The demolition of the structure in question has already passed through the entire judicial hierarchy, including the Supreme Court, and the security agencies were positioned and ready to enter the neighborhood with an overwhelming force to facilitate the demolitions, when the last minute phone call came from Netanyahu’s office and the demolition was postponed until further notice.
